What is life?

So, it was almost sometime around 4 am last night when I finally got to bed.  I was not feeling it today at all!  I got up at my regular time and did my regular routine though.  It's ridiculously hot.  We had a few days where it wasn't too bad and I was thinking, good, fall weather is coming.  Nope, it's still full summer here. UGH!  I hate to come home soaked to the skin with sweat.  It's gross.  

I took a rest and cooled off after I got home and then did my workouts.  I was working on my French when my friend texted and said we were going to eat.  I figured I could do my French later. :P . We at at a local Italian restaurant that we really like.  It's great food and it's not expensive.  We usually share a pizza.  My half is alway pepperoni. YUM!  After that, we swung by his house.  He had some frozen sandwiches to give me and he ordered a key for my treadmill and it came today.  He also had a houseplant on his porch! 

His stepdad died a week or so ago and his place of work sent a plant.  He let me take it home. Yay!  It's got Pothos, Peace Lily and three other plants in it.  It's very pretty.  I just have to find the perfect spot to put it in.  He came in with me to make sure the treadmill worked.  It did! Yay! I only got on it for a few minutes for a test run.  I don't have any fans in there yet and it was stifling hot in there.  I hope to get some fans next month on end of the season sales!  I really need some anyway.  It would be nice to have some for other parts of the house so I'm not dying in them.

I hope it's is a little cooler tomorrow for my walk.  It's just brutal out there.  It makes me want to just stay home in my air conditioned room and never leave!


Cardio day!

So it was cardio day on the workout calendar.  I didn't do my workouts today.  I did walk though.  I also cleaned and did a lot of other stuff that could be considered cardio so I'm good lol . I had a lot of things to do today that certainly got me moving. I have been organizing things and moving things around in my room.  My bed has an issue where sometimes the box spring falls through the frame.  I had to take the mattress off the bed and get the box spring back in place and then tighten the bolts on the bed so hopefully it won't do it again.  That is an entire cardio workout on it's own! LOL!  I also went to Target today and got a few of those under the bed boxes to organize more stuff and keep it out of the way and clean!

I did a bit of painting in my closet and also touched up a few things in my room that needed it. I have a trunk and my nightstand painted the same color, so I fixed a few spots on those while I had the paint out.  I got so much done today!  I was good, too.  I went to Target and didn't go in the Starbucks there.  Well, I did go over there but it was to look at a pretty blue tumbler. I didn't get anything.  I even drove by the regular Starbucks and didn't go.  Now I'm wishing I had. LOL Oh well.

I am probably going to go back for that tumbler.  I haven't seen one in a while that I like so much.  Since it's something I collect, and it's my favorite color, it's got to be added to my collection. ^_^ . I'm pretty sure it's grande size as it looks like my white one that I got last year.  

DOH! I just got a notification from Duolingo about my French.  I usually do my lesson after my workouts in the afternoon, but since I didn't do my workouts today, I didn't do my French. I'll go do that as soon as I finish typing this up!  I'll do a post tomorrow about my new phone and how I'm liking it. I would do that tonight, but this is already a long post and I want to do a post just to it.  Look for that tomorrow! ^_^


Skipping days.

Yesterday was pretty much skipped all around!  I didn't walk, I didn't do my workouts, and I didn't post to my blog!  What did I do?  Well, I laid in bed part of it.  I read, I relaxed, and just did nothing.  I have been feeling run down and like I am trying to get sick, so I decided that yesterday I'd just skip my walk and workouts and just rest.  I feel better today.  I am not 100%, but I do feel better.  The only thing that I usually do everyday, my French lesson, is the only thing I did!

I was going to post in my blog, but then I figured, I give it a day off too.  Today, I walked and it was sunny.  The first time it's been sunny and nice all day in ages.  It was cold and rainy yesterday, so not walking was not a big disappointment!  Today it got up around sixty and it was so nice!

I came home from my walk and did a few things before getting in my workouts and doing my French lesson.  After that, I had a few minutes to relax before I was off to fix lunch.  I had lunch and then watched the Olympics for a few minutes before going to wash my hair.  I dried it and then ran to the post office to mail off the shoes I received yesterday.  They were extremely uncomfortable.  As much as they cost, I couldn't see keeping them!  I'll buy something else next month.  In the meantime, I found an old pair of shoes a friend gave me.  I tried them on and they felt better than my worn out pair and much better than the new pair!  I tend to hit hard on the ball of my foot and my heel.  That is where my shoes wear out the quickest.  The ball of my foot has been giving me a LOT of trouble lately, so I needed new shoes.  

I have gotten everything done that I needed to do today except  but the bed linen back on my bed.  It's in the dryer, so when it's done, I'll do that and then I'm going to settle in and watch more of the Olympics.  Ice Dancing is on tonight!  

OH!  When I went to the post office to mail the shoes back, I checked my box and I had three letters from pen pals. Yay! Now I have four to write this week.  It's nice to have some.  They have been slow in coming lately!  


Starbucks time denied!

So, I decided to load up my messenger bag and go to Starbucks this afternoon.  I wanted to work on pen pal letters and spend the afternoon relaxing in Starbucks.  I got there and they were completely full.  There was no where for me to sit! :(  I got my cascara latte and a multi grain bagel and left.  I was very disappointed as I was looking forward to staying quite a while.  I came home and crashed on my sofa and I have been here ever since.  

I finished the zombie book I was reading and found the second one in the series was a free to borrow on on Amazon Prime.  I downloaded it to my Kindle, but I haven't started it yet.  I got in my walk today.  It was overcast and a bit drizzly at times.  It didn't really rain though so that was okay.  I did get damp and I had to use my umbrella a bit, but it wasn't too bad.  I came home and relaxed a bit.  I planned to do m workouts at the usual time but then didn't.  I will do those later. 

I packed up and headed to Starbucks, but like I said, there was no where for me to sit.  I miss the old location.  There was more seating there.  I like the new locations drive thru and how nice it is, but it's just not big enough.  They really need more seating.  

I created my habit tracker in bujo for February.  I am doing color themes for the months this year.  January's theme was blue, February's is going to be pink.  I have my habit tracker done and I plan to put something on the other page, I just am not sure what.  Probably a February calendar.  

I need to be thinking about what I'm going to fix for dinner.  So far, I have no idea what I want!  I'll eat dinner and then do my workouts.  I'll only have to put my bed linen back on my bed and I'll have everything I needed to do done for today.  I took a bath earlier and washed my hair, so that is done.  I also already did my French lesson.  I just need to finish this post and then put the linens back on the bed.  Oh, and do my workouts!  Those won't be bad as it's arm day.  Those are usually not too bad!


Here we go again! :P

I created a new banner today that I really like  It has Starbucks on it, so how could I not like it!? :p  I also changed the colors and the background.  The banner will stay, I'm not sure about the colors at background just yet.  We'll see.  

As for today, I got in my walk, I came home and relaxed a little bit and then did my workouts.  After those, I had lunch.  Since then I've been pretty lazy.  I took a bath, I read, I watched TV... well, shows on the Roku.  I've already done my French lesson, so after I post this, I'm probably just going to get in my bed with the Kindle. I finished the true crime book last night and started a zombie book.  So far, so good.  I also want to play some more Pocket Camp.  It's just so cute!

I also drank a lot of coffee today! :p


Friday fun

So, I walked today.  It was overcast and rainy when I got up, but when I went to walk, the sun came out!  It started to cloud up a bit while I walked, but it never rained on me.  I came home and was in relaxing for a while when it started to rain a lot and hard!  I was glad I missed all that!  I was going to do my workouts but a friend had said we'd go eat, so I put them off.

He finally came and we went to a local restaurant that we like.  We ate and then he dropped me home.  I came in and checked my bank account to see if I had enough to get my hair cut.  I did, so I went to the mall.  I got my hair cut finally and it looks so much better.  It was really getting on my nerves before.  It's short in back and longer in front just like I like it.  I bet I lost five pounds just from hair! LOL!  I left there and went by Starbucks.  It is right there at the mall! :P

So, I didn't get my beloved Cascara latte.  I wanted to try the new Blonde espresso.  I got a blonde vanilla latte and it was amazing!  I used to get vanilla lattes and would had a lot a caramel to them.  I didn't have to add anything to this.  I'm really liking the blonde espresso.  It's good.  I say that the blonde espresso is good.  Give it a try!

I came home from the mall and washed my hair.  I always have to wash my hair after getting a cut.  I did that and then did my workouts.  I have yet to eat dinner.  Oops.  I usually have lunch at 4 and dinner at 8 or 9.  I ate a little later than usual for lunch, so I'm not too far off on dinner.  I'm going to fix that after I finish typing this up.  I've already done my French lesson and the French guide I bought from Amazon came today.  It will be a help in my learning the language.  With just me glancing in it, I see some things I didn't know why were done and now I get it.  Cool!  It has a workbook feel to it with lessons and quizzes.  I am going to enjoy using it.


Holiday time

So, I walked today and I came home and instead of doing my workouts, I went on a few errands.  I came back here and then took gifts to my friend's house.  I stayed for a little bit and then headed back here.  I played a lot of Pocket Camp. :p  I just now finished my workouts.  I have my bed linen washed and back on the bed.  I've done my French lesson.  I just need to wash my hair and I'm totally done with my to do list for the day.

I got myself a few $1 items and wrapped them up and put them under my tree.  I got a puzzle, a box of candy canes, and a cute pen.  I wanted to have something under there.  It's not much, but there you go!  I really don't have a lot to say tonight as you can tell.  It's been a long day and it's only a few minutes after 9!


Well hell!

I needed to go to Family Dollar tonight to get a bag of popcorn. I air pop some and put it in a Tupperware container and eat on it for several days.  I just make fresh when that is gone.  Well, I meant to go to Family Dollar and just get popcorn and perhaps some hair ties.  I ended up getting ten dollars worth of stuff!  Sheesh!  I got two shirt boxes for gifts, a set of three gift bags, a roll of snowman wrapping paper, a set of gift labels, a cute little metal tin, and a bag of Cheez Doodles! LOL  Shame on me! :p

I did walk today and get my workouts done.  I have my bed linen in the dryer. It's ready to go back on the bed, but I keep forgetting to go in there and get it!  I did get my hair washed and dried.  I planned to put the linens on after that, but I did my French lesson and then decided to post to my blog.  I was tempted to run over to Starbucks while I was out going to Family Dollar today, but I decided to just come back home. I'm sure I'll go one day this week.  The last time I was in there, there was another tumbler that I liked.  Like I need another tumbler! LOL!  It's a cute one, though!

 


Early post!

I needed to go to the post office and the library today, so I walked.  It was nice outside.  Not really too warm and it was sunny.  I got to the post office and got my letters.  I had to go to the counter because I had a postage due one. This is why I walked so I could get it while they were open.  I did that and then checked my box.  I had more letters, yay!

I left there and headed to the library.  I needed to update my card so I could use the ebook service.  I checked out three books while I was there.  Two French books and Dangerous Ground by M. William Phelps.  I already started on it. :p  The French books are for language learning.  I thought it would be nice to have some backup to Duolingo.  One is a 'workbook' of sorts and the other is French and English grammar.  They are presented side by side for comparison.

I got back in time to do my workouts, but I decided to wait until later this evening to do them.  It's a HIIT routine, so it will only take me thirty minutes.  I can do that later.  I am glad I got to the post office and the library.  I hadn't walked that far in a while, so it was a bit tiring.  I came back and sat on my bed with a cup of coffee and my book.  I'm going to finish typing this up and then ge ready to fix my lunch.  After that, I'll probably just relax for a while and then do my workouts.  I slept a lot better last night than I have for the past week, so that made my walk a bit better.  I also got to meet an adorable Lab and that helped too! :P I played Pokemon Go on the way down, but running that and my fitness app was making the battery go down quickly, so I stopped before I got to my turn around point.


First full day so far....

So, I told you in my earlier post that I might post again today.  Well, I'm posting!  I wanted to tell you about my day up until now.  I ate leftover pizza this morning and had three cups of coffee!  My friend and I sat on the balcony for a while just enjoying the view.  I decided after a bit to go out.  He wasn't ready to go yet, so I went out and walked.  I went to Big Lots, Dollar General, and several different beachwear stores.  All are having good end of the season sales.  I got two NICE t-shirts in the Bargain Beachwear (My favorite beachwear shops) for $10!  I thought that was a great deal.  One is the an exact match to one I got in June but in a different color.  It's red.  The other shirt I got today is blue.  Both are pretty.  

I also found myself a really nice heavy duty coffee mug in another beachwear store.  I can't remember which one at the moment. I always bring my bestie a present from the beach that is something to do with turtles.  It's getting harder and harder to find something different to carry her.  I found something though.  I won't mention it in case she reads this. :p

In that store, I found a pink long tank that I bought half off of the sale price, I think I paid $4 for it  I will use it as a beach cover up and it can also be a good workout shirt for at home.  I went in soooo many beachwear shops.  It's a nice diversion and it's usually nice and cool in them!

I came back here and I have my phone charging.  It went down to 11% while I was out. Oops!  I forgot that it wasn't fully charged when I left the room.  It's charging now and hopefully it will be pretty close to full when we go out tonight.  I am not sure where exactly we are going.  He mentioned perhaps the Dead Dog Saloon as we both love it.  We had planned to do that tomorrow night, but neither of us like the guy who is performing tomorrow night.  They have live music at the restaurant.

So, I may update again later tonight and I may just do it tomorrow. We'll see.  OH! I did my workouts this afternoon.  It was cardio.  WAH!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL  I did them though.  After I post this, I'm going to do my French lesson with Duolingo and then wait to see what we are going to do tonight.  I took a picture with Photobooth of the ocean. I don't think it will look as good as a picture from my phone, but I'll share it here:

Okay, not great, but it will do for now. :p
